Nicole R. Schmidt, Fundraising Copywriter, Speaker & Storyteller
How I’ve become your fundraising sidekick:
I’ve undergone professional training through the AWAI Nonprofit Copywriting Course developed by leading experts such as Mal Warwick, Kay Lautman and Jerry Huntsinger. From intensive study of high performing controls to the use of quality control tools to gauge my writing, I’ve learned to write donor-centered communications. What’s this mean for you? Well, I have happy clients. Go to my LinkedIn profile and connect with me to see some recommendations: http://www.linkedin.com/pub/nicole-schmidt/19/b50/a8b
Or you can go to my website to see testimonials, writing samples and case studies.
I’ve experience writing a variety of communications: annual reports, fundraising/supporter recruitment letters, press releases etc. What’s this mean for you? I can offer creative consultancy and I’m happy to write several pieces for your campaign. I can tie that direct-mail piece in with a special landing page on your website, as well as integrate that with Twitter, Facebook and email pushes.
I also have an MA in English (with distinction) from the University of Southampton and experience as a secondary educator in the US and the UK – these experiences having taught me to be an effective communicator.
